Georgia Land Cover Image Atlas Volume 1: Impact of Urbanization

This atlas is one of GeorgiaView’s outreach activities. The theme of this atlas is the impact of urbanization. Many people underestimate the extensive change of land cover in their living environment. Even if many online platforms provide land cover or land cover change information, they are not reached to the public easily because of, mostly, technical limits. As a way of helping people's environmental awareness and decision making, intuitively and informatively, GeorgiaView will develop image atlas series using community boundaries in Georgia such as 159 counties, 14 congressional districts, and 12 regional commissions. Landsat imagery, administrative boundaries, and the National Land Cover Database (NLCD) are important datasets that are used in this atlas. Road network datasets are also used as a reference for relative locations of geographical units such as counties. This atlas will appeal to various decision makers who use geographical boundaries at local and state governments. It may also be used for civilizing K-12 students about their communities, land cover changes, and environmental awareness.
